Dominion secures plant site for Marcellus gas

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Jan. 12
-- Dominion, Richmond, Va., has reached agreement with PPG Industries on an option for Dominion to buy land at PPG's Natrium, W.Va., site for construction of a 300 MMcfd natural gas processing plant.

Dominion Transmission, Dominion's natural gas pipeline and storage subsidiary, plans to process gas and separate NGLs at the 56-acre site as part of its previously announced Marcellus 404 Project (OGJ, June 7, 2010, p. 52). Engineering design and project planning for the plant are under way, said the Dominion announcement; financial terms were not disclosed.

The plant will also have fractionation capacity for up to 38,000 b/d of NGLs.

Natrium, on the Ohio River in Marshall County about 9 miles north of New Martinsville, W.Va., is close to Dominion's TL-404 pipeline, an existing transmission line in Ohio and West Virginia that Dominion plans to convert into wet-gas service. Natrium is also close to rail, pipeline, and barging for marketing NGLs.
